||White classic method sparkling wine brut
||Langa albese and astigiana (CN)
||Altitude between 400 and 600 m s.l.m. with south and southwest exposure.
||The ground consists of white clays interlaced by layers of sand and limestone marc.
||Grapes harvested in 20-pound cassettes are poured directly into the press for a soft and delicate squeeze. The obtained must is placed in thermoconditioned tanks for static decantation, then started to ferment in low temperature stainless steel tanks (18-20 ° C). The wine, at the end of fermentation, is kept in contact with the lees until spring.
||At this point, the cuvée is realized by combining the wines of the different crus selected. In the spring, the wine faces a second fermentation, the one in the bottle, followed by a process of ripening on the yeasts, in the fresh, dark and protected cellars, in accordance with the strictest rules of the Classic Method Sparkling Wine.
||Great as an aperitif, but above all - for its unquestioned personality - it is an excellent way to accompany all the courses.
